(AP) President Barack Obama says the U.S. must continue updating its policies toward Cuba.


Obama says the U.S. has started to see changes on the island. Obama says U.S. policy aims will remain the same but the nation must find new tools to speak out.


Obama points out that he was born around the same time Fidel Castro took power. He says it doesn't make sense that policies put in place more than 50 years ago would still be effective in the Internet age. The U.S. cut off diplomatic relations with Cuba in 1961 and imposed a full economic embargo the next year.


The administration has engaged in recent discussions about migration and mail and relaxed travel and remittance rules for Cuban Americans.


Obama spoke at a Democratic fundraiser in Miami.
